Vizio throws weight into consumer PC market with notebook, all-in-one

Vizio is extremely popular in the low-budget HDTV market, and is now showing interest in other business units

High-definition TV manufacturer Vizio showed off more than just TVs during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), introducing a new 24" all-in-one PC and a thin mobile device. Both ship with 1080p HD touchscreen displays, with the AIO also including a remote control, dual HDMI inputs, wireless keyboard, and multi-gesture touchpad.

Meanwhile, the Thin + Light has a 15.6" touchscreen, 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology, yielding a think laptop profile with up to 7.5 hours of battery life. A 4th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU and onboard Intel Iris Pro Graphics form factor provide a surprising amount of hardware to power the laptop.

"Vizio continues to push the performance envelope in terms of personal computing," said Matt McRae, Vizio CTO, in a statement. "The 15.6" Thin + Light Touch and 24" All-in-One Touch models feature significant upgrades to the highest performance processors and wireless technologies."

Vizio is best known as a budget HDTV manufacturer, though expanding its product catalog with a focus on AIOs and the mobile market is a unique idea.
